A novel anaerobic, moderately thermophilic bacterium, strain Cas60314(T), was isolated from hot oil-well production water obtained from an oil reservoir in the North Sea. The cells were Gram-negative, motile, straight rods. The salinity and pH growth optima were 2.0-3.0 % NaCl and 6.5-7.0, respectively. The optimum temperature was 58 degrees C. Strain Cas60314(T) had a fermentative type of metabolism and utilized proteinous substrates, some single amino acids and a limited number of organic… CONTINUE READING
